It's been four years since President Felipe Calderon launched a war against Mexico's most powerful drug cartels. Although the efforts by the Mexican state have produced several high profile arrests, the strategy of meeting force with force has only yielded limited results in stemming the level of violence at the many fronts where this war is being fought. Money laundering - which funds the operational structures of these criminal groups - remains largely intact. Estimates by some government officials point out that only 1% of all illegal money has been targeted. Moreover, the arsenal of weapons, which continues to be smuggled into the country from the United States and South America, has produced over 47,000 deaths. Each state in the Republic has a different story to tell. This is the story of Ciudad Juarez.
